A "-walla" is someone who is involved with a particular activity. So while you may not dedicate your life to becoming a "yogi", anyone can become a yogawalla.
The Yogawalla Mission
A "-walla" is a Hindi term for someone who is involved with a particular activity. Most of us don't do yoga so we can become enlightened monks; we are not trying to become dedicated yogis. But anyone who wants the benefits of yoga without buying into the entire lifestyle can become a yogawalla. I created Yogawalla NYC so that I could bring my students a practical, no-nonsense approach to applying the tools of yoga - not just in a session but in everyday life.
I was never an athlete. When I first started yoga, I didn't have strength or flexibility. I couldn't hold a plank or touch my toes. What I did have was back pain from sitting all day, stress from working long hours and an over- active social life, and psoriasis that was triggered by not taking good care of myself. Yoga provided me the tools to lead a healthier life - one where I prioritized my well- being so work, relationships and everything else could fall in to place. These are the tools I want to bring to you.
